Important advice with regard to tuberculosis in foreign visitors!
Throughout the past years, there has been a sharp increase in tuberculosis, in particular in eastern European states. Please make sure, in the public interest, to undergo a tuberculosis test (X-ray or or intradermal test/Mendel-Mantoux test) prior to your entry into Germany. This test should not be older than three months. It protects you from the risk of a pre-existing infection.
Apart from the health risk, you otherwise also take a high financial risk since no pre-existing medical conditions (prior to entering Germany), including tuberculosis, are covered by the insurance policy.
Benefits based on prior agreement or approval
In some cases, a medical costs projection is a necessary precondition for a 100% reimbursement of the reimbursable treatment expenses. You must provide us with a medical costs projection prior to the planned treatment in the following cases:
- diagnostic radiology methods that exceed the scope of conventional X-ray diagnostics (such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and scintigraphy),
- allergy tests.
- treatment of more than two teeth during the insurance period,
- periodontal treatment,
- treatments with an estimated cost range of more than €250.
Without our written approval of the medical costs projection, the reimbursement of the above named benefits is limited to 50% of the reimbursable costs.
Liability insurance benefits
In addition to bodily injury and property damage, the policy also covers damage to rented property. Damage to rented property is damage that is caused to a rented apartment. It has become popular with landlords to demand that such damage is covered.
Personal liability insurance coverage only applies if the insured person is not sufficiently covered by other
insurance policies (subsidiary coverage). Damages to motor vehicles caused by the usage of such vehicles are
excluded from insurance coverage.
